Seven Lean Years

A Little History …

In January 2002, I was audibly called to reread prophecy … within the day, I theologically journeyed from where I had comfortably been for the previous thirty years into uncharted territory that saw the visible, physical things of this world revealing and preceding the invisible spiritual things of God, with the maturation of a human child forming the model of spiritual maturation as the left hand of a person forms the non-symmetrical mirror image of the right hand. And because so much was new and open to exploration, I [we] deemphasize what was physical and emphasized what was spiritual.

Thirteen years have passed since being called to reread prophecy, and it has become time to address physically living as best one can through the collapse of society brought upon humanity by the Second Passover liberation of spiritual Israel from indwelling sin and death  


In the physical, Israel in its journey through the wilderness ate manna [what is it, a seed like coriander — Num 11:7] that formed the chiral image of Christ Jesus, the true bread from heaven (John 6:32) … the indwelling of Christ Jesus gives life to the inner self, the spirit of the person in the soul of the person, but doesn’t necessary sustain the physical body, sustained through the dark fire of cellular oxidation of simple carbohydrates.

Within the community of Christians that have come to support the work I do in rereading prophecy is experience and knowledge about living ecologically sustainable lives that if [when] the person can no longer buy and sell, the person can maintain physical life and be of service to others in their retention of life.

At the Second Passover liberation of Israel, every person who professes that Jesus is Lord will be filled-with and empowered by the spirit of God. Every Christian will be liberated from indwelling sin and death. But the Christian will remain mortal, subject to death from outside causes, the most common of which will be martyrdom by other Christians, but one of which will be starvation, want of the calories needed to sustain cellular oxidation. And that should not be.

In John’s Gospel, Jesus told His disciples,

This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. (John 15:12–14)

As friend, as teacher, Lord and Master, Christ Jesus has warned His disciples about what will soon occur (Rev 1:1), with this warning reaching back to the days of Pharaoh when Joseph interpreted his dream and continuing forward to when “the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale” (Rev 6:13). … Society as it is presently organized will cease to exist. The infrastructure of the modern world will be destroyed, if there is a physical reality attached to the words of John’s vision. Maintaining physical life will become impossible without some form of divine intervention. And about all of this, warning has been given.

If a Christian chooses to ignore warnings given and if the Christian remains faithful, the Christian will be sealed in death, the grave being the place of safety for Sabbatarian Christendom. There will be no “safety” in remaining in this world except as God places a figurative bubble around the Christian as a bubble/hedge had been placed around Job (Job 1:10). Yet as Joshua and Caleb crossed the Jordan, and as Noah and the seven crossed from one world into the next world, there will be Christians crossing from the Affliction [the first 1260 days of the seven endtime years] into the Endurance in Jesus, the last 1260 days. And as Noah prepared to cross from one world into the next, Christians also need to prepare to cross into the Endurance, when dominion over the single kingdom of this world is taken from the Adversary and his angels and given to the Son of Man, Head and Body.

At the heart of preparing for life in the Endurance when the Christian cannot buy or sell without taking the mark of the beast, the mark of death, is knowledge of how to sustain life without engaging in transactions. We are about supplying as much knowledge as we have about sustaining life without making transactions. As such, we will discuss surviving when gold and silver are thrown into streets because there is nothing to buy.
